This semester a number of students from ELIT and ELT programs enrolled in Children’s Literature Course taught by Assistant Professor Dr. Vesna Suljić. One of the tasks was to collaborate in small groups and create a picture book in English language for children aged 5-7.
The students had to take into consideration this particular stage in the child’s psychological and social development, including the child’s linguistic abilities to understand the story. The students had to pay attention to vocabulary, syntax, as well as to the form, size, colours and other extra-linguistic features of the picture book. The students have shown enthusiasm, creativity and adherence to the theoretical premises they had learnt about during the course, which resulted in very good final products, some of which could be marketable.
